ETHERIDGE, JOHN WESLEY° (1804–1866), English student of Judaica. Etheridge, who was a Methodist minister, held no academic position. His published works deal with both the Syriac Bible and the Targum, of which he did English translations of Onkelos and Pseudo-Jonathan to the Pentateuch, The Targum of Onkelos and Jonathan ben Uzziel on the Pentateuch (2 vols., 1862, 1865). He also published Horae Aramaicae: Outlines of the Semitic Language (London, 1843) and in 1856 a survey of Jewish learning entitled Jerusalem and Tiberias: Sora and Cordova. As a pioneering introduction to the various departments of Jewish learning, the work is not without significance. -ADD. BIBLIOGRAPHY: ODNB online. (Raphael Loewe)
